Those of you who like chocolate spread, whichever kind of chocolate, know it is usually not very healthy to eat a lot of chocolate. Not so much because of the chocolate itself, but mostly due to the sugars that are added to the chocolate. This is most certainly the case with chocolate spread, of which the main ingredient is sugar. Cacao in itself is even very healthy and is a product of a plant, no more no less. It is tricky to find a both tasty and healthy chocolate spread. Fortunately, making one yourself is not that difficult.

Bring a pan of water to the boil and place a metal dish on top of it heating it in a Bain Marie. Turn the heat down and melt the chocolate drops in the dish. Meanwhile, pour the coconut oil in another bowl and gently whip until light and soft. Add the melted chocolate and coconut blossom sugar with cacao and mix well.
Chop up the pistachio nuts and add about 1 tablespoon to the mix you made, and leave to cool in the fridge. Let it cool for about 30 to 40 minutes and then mix the pistachio nuts with the chocolate and coconut oil mixture until you obtain a paste. Keep the paste in the fridge and take out 10 minutes before serving, to make sure it is well spreadable.
